At his usual rowing rate, Rahul can travel 12 miles downstream in a certainriver in six hours less than it takes him to travel the same distanceupstream. But if he could double his usual rowing rate for this 24 milesround trip, the downstream 12 miles would then take only one hour lessthan the upstream 12 miles. What is the speed of the current in miles per hour?

Shyama and Vyom walk up an escalator (moving stairway). The escalator moves at a constant speed. Shyama takes three steps for every two of Vyom's steps. Shyama gets to the top of the escalator after having taken25 steps. While Vyom (because his slower pace lets the escalator do alittle more of the work) takes only 20 steps to reach the top. If the escalator were turned off, how many steps would they have to take to walk up?

Only a single rail track exists between station A and B on a railway line.One hour after the north bound superfast train N leaves station A for station B, a south passenger train S reaches station A from station B. Thespeed of the superfast train is twice that of a normal express train E, whilethe speed of a passenger train S is half that of E. On a particular day Nleaves for station B from station A, 20 minutes behind the normalschedule. In order to maintain the schedule both N and S increased their speed. If the superfast train doubles its speed, what should be the ratio(approximately) of the speed of passenger train to that of the superfasttrain so that passenger train S reaches exactly at the scheduled time atthe station A on that day?
